Some tests display a command to the operator. For example, if “Pressing Brake Pedal” displays, the

operator has to press and hold the brake pedal and then continue. Actual tests vary by vehicle

manufacturer, year, make.

Typical special test options include:

  • Deactivate/Activate SBC/EPB systems – allows to deactivate brakes for further service or

maintenance work on brake systems or activate brakes when service or maintenance work on

brake systems are completed.

reset and CBS correction for front brake and rear brake.

  • Perform activation/service work on Volvo PBM vehicles – allows to perform installation check,

applying parking brake, releasing parking brake, activating service mode and exiting service


  • Reset memory on Toyota EPB vehicles – allows to clear the learned memory of the EPB ECU.
  • Perform brake cable replacement and electric parking brake replacement – allows to fit in or

remove the brake cable safely, adjust brake cable’s tension and calibrate the electric parking

brake replacement.

  • Save and write clutch pedal programming on Renault EPB vehicles – allows to save clutch

pedal programming on Renault vehicles fitted with manual gearbox. After this command is

activated, the tool allows to “flash” the electric parking brake unit with the saved clutch data.

  • Perform control function and reset function on Opel EPB vehicles – allows to apply/release

park brake cable service, provide park brake cable service replacement procedures and calibrate

the parking brake systems after brake service.

  • Sensor calibration on Honda EPB vehicles – allows to program the current output value of each sensor into the electric parking brake unit.
  • Provides parking brake unjam procedure and perform longitudinal accelerometer

calibration on Land Rover EPB vehicles – allows to drive the electronic park brake so it is

unjamed in the releasing direction and then drive it into mounting position or the latching position; also allows to perform longitudinal accelerometer calibration.

  • EPB systems must be deactivated before carrying out any maintenance/service work on the

brakes such as changing of pads, discs and calipers.

  • Use proper tools to avoid the risk of body injuries of mechanics and technicians and damage to the brake system.
  • Make sure the vehicle is properly blocked after deactivation of the systems.

  1. Throttle Body Alignment (TPS/TBA)

It’s very common to see a customer pull into the shop with a Volkswagen or Audi that just will not idle correctly. One of the possible causes is that the throttle position is not known. When the motion range is not known, the ECU simply has no idea where to set the throttle. The ECU must know the full range of motion of the throttle in order for it to properly control the engine. Using the throttle position sensors in the throttle body, the ECU learns the full open and full closed positions through various states (idle, part throttle, WOT) known as a Throttle Body Alignment (TBA).

In this case, you must the diagnostic device to perform tooth learning for the car. After tooth learning is successful, the MIL turns off.
